I know in previous versions of the Flash Player and AS there
was a problem any time you used an external script, in say Perl or
PHP, to connect to a database and bring information into your SWF
in a browser. There was a caching issue that made the data not also
refresh or something in the SWF. Is this problem still around? If I
developed a website using Flash, PHP and mySQL and I load in data
from mySQL, is there going to be a cache problem with it?
Hoepfully someone is familiar with that former problem
because I know I'm not explaining it well...but I know it was why
people wouldn't tie a database into a browser-based SWF...
This is a problem I ran into when building a website that
used a flash front end to talk to a database. I used ASP and not
PHP to handle the communication but the same problem arises. When
using ASP the solution is easy. You simply add the following lines
of code to your asp page that returns the data to flash.
